Tonawanda News — I’m calling regarding the new shopping carts at the Tops on Niagara Street in Tonawanda. I was just there and I was shocked at least 25 times on my hands while using the shopping carts. I reported it to the service desk and they told me that they were aware that people were getting shocks and it was a reaction between the shopping carts and the floor. I asked them what they were doing regarding warning people and telling people not to put their babies in the carts, and their answer was “Well we know that people are getting shocked.” So be careful when using the new black carts with red lettering.

 To the firefighters of North Tonawanda, over the past several months, you have responded several times to calls at our house. No sooner had I put the phone down, that it seemed as though you were here. You showed the greatest kindness, gentleness. Keeping the dignity of the patient foremost at your rescue efforts. Your gentleness was amazing, going above and beyond all efforts to try not to cause unnecessary pain and discomfort. Never a grumble, never a complaint. Your efforts were truly amazing. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We urge all citizens to support our fire dept. 100 percent.

When the chief of police in the City of Tonawanda says that not having overnight parking will aid in his fight against having abandoned cars on the streets. If you think about it, though, dropping the speed limit to 40 miles per hour on the thruway would also save lives, but at some point you have to make a decision and say ‘enough is enough,’ and look at other factors. That is the case and point here. Just as we don’t want the speed limit dropped to 40 miles per hour, we also think that it is a little ridiculous that we can’t park on the street in the summertime.
